Tenuta Belcorvo – Italy

Background

Tenuta Belcorvo was founded over forty years ago, the result of a family’s love for their land. This passion, passed down through generations, allows wine enthusiasts to be offered a huge selection of excellent wines in bulk and in bottles, thanks to the integration of agricultural tradition and modern technologies.

Purposes

Tenuta Belcorvo commissioned us to expand its refrigeration system, through the design of a unit ensuring technological innovation and low noise emissions.

Challenges

The first challenge we had to face was to double the cooling capacity compared to the existing system, while maintaining the same electrical system and relative consumption.

Furthermore, since it was an extension, the positioning of the chiller was constrained by the pre-existing system, so it was necessary to use a large-scale crane with a considerable outreach.

Project

For this project, we have developed a 1400 kW (398 RT) air-cooled Turbomiser unit, with 3 oil-free centrifugal compressors equipped with acoustic boxes, EC axial fans and a flooded evaporator. The unit ensures ESEER levels of 5.39 (W/W)*.
